We are very excited to announce from 1st July 2019, Project Pantry’s hamper collection process will be changing. Hampers will now be available Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (excludes public holidays) between the hours of 10am -1pm at our Project Pantry building. This change has come about due to participants needing greater choice in collection times and will replace the Saturday Market Day. To receive your hamper, please be advised of the following.
How to Book – You will still be required to phone 3624 2121 to confirm collection. You will be provided with a regular collection day each month & one hamper per month still applies.
Eligibility – Seniors on an Aged Pension and individuals receiving a Disability Support Pension, who reside in the Burnie Brae catchment area are eligible to receive a hamper.
Payment – Payment of your hamper will be at our Reception desk in the main Burnie Brae Centre. After payment you will handed a receipt, along with a voucher for a free coffee/tea at Café Connect. The cost of the hamper remains the same at $10.00.
Other Changes – We will no longer be offering the meat pack, however a selection of cooked meals is available.
Emergency Hampers No Longer Available- Due to a greater choice in pick up days and times, we will be discontinuing our emergency food hamper service.
